Scarf Challenge 23

Sometimes you have smaller bits of left over yarn and need a good scarf pattern that will use those bits. This is the one! When I made the first row I thought there were lots of stitches, did not realize how much it would shrink with this stitch pattern.


If you want a long scarf I would suggest making the first row much longer. The pattern is quick and easy after the first couple of repeats. Instead of weaving in all the ends you could add fringe to the scarf.


You can find the pattern below or if you would like to support me and my crochet habit, the pattern can be purchased on Ravelry for $2 :)
